  • New to the seventh edition: detailed coverage of blunt cervical arterial injuries; awake craniotomies; brain mapping; new grading systems for cervical and thoracolumbar fractures; radiation safety for neurosurgeons; organ donation after cardiac death; and expanded discussion of endovascular techniques
  • Numerous updates, including information on dural arteriovenous malformations; tumors and molecular biology; and new neuromonitoring modalities such as brain oxygen tension, cerebral microdialysis, and regional cerebral blood flow
  • The return of basic surgical material to acquaint readers with the operating room
  • A practical new feature called Booking the Case supplies helpful information about scheduling surgery and obtaining informed consent
  • Highly valuable section on hot topics in neurocritical care
  • Color highlights and full-color inserts to enhance readability

Comprehensive and conveniently compact, this book is a must-have reference for neurosurgery residents and a useful tool for anyone working in the clinical neurosciences.
